You can probably guess why Bawdsey is part of number seven in 11 Britons that changed the face of technology.
What looks like an unpleasant little vendetta in Knodishall.

Despite pitch black and incessant rain it was all we could do to get through the door at Bawdsey Village Hall last night it was so crowded for the private view of photographs, paintings, prints, digital art and ceramics to benefit St Mary's, Bawdsey. The show is open to the public today until 4pm and perhaps like us you too will be fooled by Sophia Rogers' monochrome pieces.

Oh dear, the Knodishall shop was burgled Monday night.

The Knodishall Butcher's Arms is for sale and why is some of the same stuff more expensive in the Aldeburgh Solar than the Framlingham one? Is it because they're posher in Aldeburgh? Well that'll teach 'em.

Down Judith Avenue in Knodishall is a whole world we didn't know about including Coldfair Green School. With help from parents and agencies like Eastfeast the two existing raised beds at the back of the school have been lowered (they were too high for the children) and the timber used in the new poly tunnel. The tunnel will enable the school to produce a wider range of vegetables to eat. At the front of the school what was a brambles jungle is becoming a Sandlings garden to provide a home for local endangered plants. Great stuff!

The concert performance by London Operetta of HMS Pinafore at the Snape Proms last night was cracking fun! In the first half conductor Ian McMillan rehearsed the audience in both singing and massed bits of business and his hi-energy and ... more at Snape

If local mp Sir Michael Lord becomes the next speaker then much of near the coast won't have much choice at the following election because by convention the major opposition parties do not contest the speaker's seat ... mind you as deputy speaker he doesn't vote now anyway.

Yesterday's European elections certainly brought out the nutters (Animals Count? We've yet to meet one that could reach double figures), indeed the ballot paper could have easily been confused with a tabloid newspaper. In the traditional slow Suffolk manner we're still waiting for the results.
11:45am Results starting to come in
12:55pm District bye election result
01:05pm Beginning to look pretty bad for Labour, an indy got in here
01:15pm Turnout across the county looks like upper 30s%
01:50pm Good news for trees, a Green in at Upper Gipping
02:05pm Lib Dem Caroline Page takes Woodbridge from Tories
02:10pm Finally, in Ipswich a Labour win
02:11pm 49% turnout in Woodbridge for Caroline Page's win
02:16pm Conservative Patricia O'Brien returned for Martlesham
02:40pm 2nd Lab win, in Ipswich again but squeaky close (13 votes). Still waiting for the east and south of the county
02:47pm Michael Bond (Con) in at Wickham. He's a district and parish councillor too, what a busy chap
02:50pm Bored now
02:52pm European election results not until Sunday night
03:07pm Looks like east Suffolk doesn't want anyone looking at them funny so they've voted Tory too
03:31pm Ah well that's it. All of near the coast is dark blue apart from the single orange hold out of Woodbridge, going to butcher a hub now.

Ed_the_Greek rang NHS Direct about this swine flu, it was a terrible line all he got was crackling.
|we 29 Apr|
According to NHS Suffolk the UK is among the most prepared countries in the world to deal with swine flu ... doesn't sound very British ... being prepared. Apparently Gloucester Old Spots live in terror of catching man flu.
Perhaps for the very good reason it's no longer two tone horns emergency speak now calls it the full disco not blues and twos.

Lugubrious sort of East Anglian Sir Clement Freud has died aged 84. He was a liaison officer at the Nuremberg war crime trials after WWII and was deeply concerned that new crimes were being created on the hoof ... so no change there then.

Here's an unhappy thought, you're a child or young person who has to be taken in to care in a hurry. What do you have? What do you own? Probably just the clothes you're wearing so Project Linus UK through the Suffolk Police Victim Care Centres gives you a quilt. What a brilliant idea! It seems no accident that Americans call a quilt a comforter.

Terry Byford is the new police superintendent for the Coastal Suffolk and Waveney districts. Infuriatingly this is the only pic we have of her; ah well, maintains the mystery.

Personally we think that dog walkers who don't clean up after need to be culled, slightly more moderate views on the board.
